Victoria Davidson, LCSW, RPT

Victoria Davidson specializes in play therapy to help children express what is troubling them when they are unable to do so verbally. Through play therapy, children can communicate with others, express feelings, modify behavior, develop problem-solving skills, and learn a variety of ways to relate to others. Although beneficial to everyone, play therapy is especially appropriate for children ages 3 through 12. Children whose problems are related to life stressors, such as divorce, death, relocation, hospitalization, chronic illness, stressful experiences, physical or sexual abuse, domestic violence, and natural disasters benefit from play therapy.
